Javier Bezos submitted an update to the


package, which is part of the LaTeX required packages.

Summary description: Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX
License type: lppl

Announcement text:

Babel 3.9b version fixes lots of bugs and adds some new features (intended 
mainly to make it compatible with Unicode engines). Some bugs have not been 
fixed to avoid backward incompatibilities, but they have been documented. Most 
of the new features (like package options) are intended to overcome issues in 
previous releases without changing significantly the behaviour of Babel.

Starting with this version, babel has been separated in a core (or "base") part,
and contributed language-specific packages.

The core part is located in the subdirectory base, the contrib part is actually
a link into CTAN's macros/latex/contrib subtree.


This package is located at
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . 
Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .


Thanks for the upload.
